Hey there!  I'm a single dad with 2 teen-kids, medical professional, who enjoys country living and sharing it with others.  I've lived in far-Northern CA and Southern Oregon my whole life, except for school/training, so State of Jefferson is my home.  We bought this land in 2017, when it was just brush, poison oak, and a rotten bridge.    Learn more about this land: Campsite on 72 acres along beautiful Jumpoff Joe Creek.  Shaded, adjacent to romantically lighted timber-frame private covered bridge (no traffic).  Very secluded, but only 1/2 mile from I-5 (no freeway noise, though).  Private "beach" area and kid-friendly water play area with wild creatures (turkey, deer, fish, crayfish, water striders, turtles, frogs, etc.). Picnic table, tent spots, and fresh water spigot.  Short hiking trails (watch out for poison oak!).  Best for tenting, smaller RV's, tree tents, or rooftop tents.  >100 yards from nearest structure. 3 nights max except by private arrangement.    NO smoking/vaping/marijuana.  NO wood fires, but propane fire-ring is available -- bring your own propane tank or pay $5 extra to use my propane tank if available.  Good cell service from Google Fi/USCellular.  WiFi available on porch of owner's house by request. Private single campsite on 72 acres along beautiful Jumpoff Joe Creek.  Shaded, adjacent to romantically lighted timber-frame private covered bridge (no traffic).  Very secluded, but only 1/2 mile from I-5 (no freeway noise, though).  Private "beach" area and kid-friendly water play area with wild creatures (turkey, deer, fish, crayfish, water striders, turtles, frogs, etc.).

Camping with animals!
What a beautiful place! There was plenty of room, and privacy. The potty potties were spotless and cleaned upon arrival! Which was such a nice touch! And let’s not forget they put in a shower, and although the heat wasent working it was still hot enough outside to enjoy after playing in the river all day. My family loved this place and we definitely want to come back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful land!

The campsite was easy to find with the directions provided by the host! The campsite was clean and was so nice right by the running creek. It has everything you needed, shower, bathroom (well maintained), water, fire ring and even offered propane for a very well priced addition. I would be happy to stay here again!

Hidden gem off I-5
What was originally a quick stopover point became a future favorite! This spot is such a hidden gem, I can’t wait to come back and spend more than a day relaxing on Jumpoff Joe Creek. Out of the three HipCamps in a week long trip, this was the unexpected winner. Thank you for sharing!

Great Camping spot in Grants Pass
The site was lovely, a beautiful little creek, clean bathroom and outdoor shower. You can see the owners home off in the distance, but it was private and a nice stay for the night. Be sure to bring a trash bag, there is no trash on site.

Great place to relax!
Fantastic site! This is my second year staying here. I’m already looking forward to booking again next year. My dog had so much fun in the water that he slept for hours afterward. The little beach is a great place to relax in the sun. I can’t imagine anything more peaceful than listening to the water and frogs at night while sitting by the fire ring. The port a potty and outdoor shower are very clean and well stocked. Thank you Marcus for including these amenities! Beware if you have dogs that there are ticks and the burs are pretty bad. Pack a metal toothed comb. I’m going to shave my dog a bit shorter next year.
